Night owl (not)!

10 pm - brought the kiddos up to bed. Some patting, some stories....
11.35 pm - little girl was tossing and turning and whimpering. Touched her forehead, she was having a fever. Woke up hubby and gave girl her medicine. Took a lot of patting before she fell asleep.
2 am - little boy started crying, complaining of a tummy ache. Brought him to the toilet but nothing. Started rolling around in bed crying and complaining of tummy ache. Seemed he was getting feverish as well. Decided to also give him panadol.
2+ am - after taking medicine, he cried harder. Crept to bed and then vommitted. His crying woke up the girl. Sigh.....Cleaned him up, changed the sheets.
Nearing 3 am - at last both the kids fell back asleep.
3+ am - boy woke up again crying saying tummy ache again. Took him out of the room so that girl won't wake up. Went downstairs and he managed to sleep a bit on the sofa.
4+ am - boy woke up saying he wants to vomit. Vomitted in the toilet bowl.
Near 5 am - Boy went back to sleep. Soaked some rice for porridge tommorrow.
7 am - Woke up to start work (from home).

oh dear! did you bring them both to see the doc? sounds like viral or stomach flu with all those vomitting and toilet visits. but best to get doc and go on liquid soft diet. you rest when u can too.
